Sing the Stars
Celebrating Mothers Retreat

This Mother’s Day, bring your son, daughter or whole family to River Mountain for a weekend of bonding through fun circles and thoughtful sharing. This retreat is appropriate for sons and daughters in the development age range of 11 to 15. Of course there is hiking, forest bathing, nature sights, and prepared meals to enjoy…..

But you can also expect a weekend full of serendipity and exploration:
- Learn 3 simple, beautiful songs themed around river and mama in song circles throughout the weekend.
- Play group mind games around the fire and lunch table to explore mindfulness tricks.

Friday Evening:
- Get re-acquainted with our starry skies by finding your bearings on the ground and mapping the skies above with crystals on a starboard (planetary mapping tool)

- Receive a private natural astrology and moon synastry session with your son or daughter.
- Discover beauty and honor your family’s mothers from times past as we build a community mandala to our ancestors.

- Get muddy from the creek and get muddy from clay mask body art

In short, you’ll leave the weekend with fresh skin, a fresh mind, fresh songs, and a fresh heart for the beauty and wonder of all things nurturing and whole….Mother!
